The Ophthalmological Society of Egypt held its thirty-sixth annual congress under the presidency of Dr. Sayed Abdel Hamid Soliman Pasha on March 25-26, 1938, at the Memorial Ophthalmic Laboratory, Giza. Many interesting clinical papers were read, of which the following are to be noted : "How does Detachment of the Retina Begin ?" ; "Detachment of the Vitreous and Acute Hypotension in Detachment of the Retina" and "Weve's Diathermia Operation for Detachment." Dr. Max Meyerhof, speaking of irradiation treatment of sellar tumors, said that while in some cases irradiation may check the progress, in most cases operation is the only sure treatment. The volume ends with obituary notices of George E. de Schweinitz and Jean D. Démétriadis.
